Ever wondered where to go to see live music in Barcelona? If so why not take a look at Don-Spanish‘s top 4 places:
Nou de la Rambla 113 Barcelona
Sala Apolo has become widely renowned in Barcelona for its indie clubbing and fantastic live music in an informal atmosphere. Artists both new and upcomming along with acclaimed pop, rock and folk stars grace the stage every day of the week. Being a large area with two stages, multiple bars and glorious acoustics, it gives music lovers the chance to hear fantastic acts both big and small. At the weekends, the rooms are filled with the sound of established and up- and -coming bands from an abundance of genres including indie, rock, pop, garage and much more.
Almogavers 122 Sant Marti Barcelona
This club is known for its wild nights, it is most definitely the playground for the young. With five distinct spaces blasting out different genres of music it is sure to have something for everyone. There’s indie rock in Razz Club, tech-house in The Loft, techno pop in Lolita, electro pop in the Pop Bar and electro rock in the Rex Room. In addition to DJ sessions, the club also stages live concerts on a regular basis. In fact, almost everyone has played here, from Arctic Monkeys to Banarama. The price of admission (around 15 euros) will usually get you into all five rooms (no matter what’s on in each), though the gigs are normally ticketed separately.
Carrer de Margarit 44, 08004 Barcelona
If you are looking for an up close and intimate performance, then this is the place to go. Jam Circus invites musicians, performers and actors from all around the world to exhibit and display their creative work in this cosy corner of a bustling city in the heart of Poble Sec. The intimacy of the space is but one of its many assets. The bar is cheap, the crowds are friendly, and the walls are lined with books and artwork, keeping spectators engaged while waiting for the show to begin. At the end of the night, once the music fades out, a hat is passed around for the audience to pay what they think the experience was worth. This is a perfect way to spend a chilled and relaxed evening.
Carrer de Muntaner, 246, 08021 Barcelona
This is a classy joint, having been beautifully renovated the old music hall has been garnished with sparkling chandeliers and stunning decoration. In between its visits from music royalty, international artists and benefit concerts, the music hall is filled with all kinds of music. On Mondays, Dixieland jazz on Tuesdays, disco on Wednesdays, pop-rock on Thursdays, soul on Fridays and vintage and Spanish rock on weekends. It really is worth a trip if not just for the music then for the decor.
